Anyone out there have any particular songs that make them laugh? I've been fortunate enough to find quite a few here on the archives. Was just curious what others like to listen to for a good chuckle. Songs about Mary Jane are always good, but I'm looking for just about anything. Thanks in advance.

Also...a lot of Matt Nathanson's songs have been known to make people laugh. Actually, his entire shows are a ball of fun.

I think an obvious choice if you're looking for a chuckle would be Tenacious D, the band of comedian/movie star Jack Black (star of the movie School of Rock, among many others). The "D" is sort of on the borderline between being a musical act and a comedy act.

I have to agree with suspect.....Matt Nathanson shows are absolutely hilarious. His stage banter alone is worth the download, and his interaction with the audience is priceless.

BTW.....BIG THANKS to all that replied to my post. I'll be sure to check them out this evening while I'm snowed in, here in VA.

Sean Reefer is highly recommended, Camper Van Beethoven also has some funny songs

I'm not unbiased as a fan of theirs, but there are a large number of Eddie from Ohio songs. Some specific examples:
Smoke [ "What brand would sweet Jesus smoke/Oh lord.... If I'm gonna get into Heaven, please tell me/"]
Doin' Time Under the Lifeguard Stand
Horse [ "Don't fall for a girl for fell for a horse, just to be number two in her world." ]
50 Pounds
and a large number of their songs are tragicomic in some way as well.
